World War II versus Modern Day Cryptography

Randy Lee


It’s been said that code breaking in the 1930s and 1940s shortened World War II by as much as two to four years and saved millions of lives. As the foundation of modern security system, modern cryptography has become an integral layer of defense within all digital business, both public and private. Understanding both classical and modern cryptography is essential for ALL roles in technology.
